Two cut outs of photos, shot at same place, same time.
Z3 compact, 20.7 megapixel vs XZ, 23 megapixel
I am not very impressed by the quality of the Z3 photos, but the XZ camera just makes it a complete disaster.... Same goes for the Z5 compact, 23 megepzixels, which I posted before (page 11)

At Full Resolution (20MP 23MP) the images would be certainly grainy when you crop to them at 100% since the pixel binning tech in the camera is not applied.
that is why the default shooting mode is set at 8mp, in which the camera will still use the whole 23 MP and with the use of the pixel binning will cram it up on 8mp photo, when you compare it with 23mp at 100% close up you will have a marginally better images.
If you are really experiencing bad images, it might be a hardware problem so time to send your devices at your local service center. Local support
Remember: bigger resolution does not mean better images.

My main problem with this camera on XZ is the predictive movement that SONY has put up in its commercials.
I tried to snap pictures of my kid when he's playing and I couldn't get a single pic without blur. So much for the advertisements..!!!
Has anybody tried to get this predictive movement/photos without blur sorted.. ???
or SONY customer care..can you please let us know how to take pictures without blur please as you advertised.

As many of you had experienced, I am also very dissatisfied with the camera performance. At least it shouldn't be the kind of experience offered by that hardware and that price tag. As many posts mentioned, there is no improvement for the new firmware.
I suppose the problem could be Sony Mobile does not know what we users are looking for, so in that sense why not have a beta for the camera, where ideas could get accumulated and discussed?
